Makakasakay na ang mas maraming bilang ng mga commuters sa Metro Rail Transit-3 (MRT-3) simula sa Lunes, October 19, ayon sa train management nitong Sabado.
Ayon kay Michael Capati, MRT-3 director for operations, tinaasan ng 30 percent ang maximum capacity kaya mula sa 153 pasahero kada train set noon, 372 na ang maaaring makasakay.
Aniya, “We will do this to help transport more people. In addition to increasing our train capacity, our passengers can also expect more trains to be deployed along the mainline, shorter waiting time, and faster travel time. This is part of DOTr [Department of Transportation] and MRT-3’s commitment to provide a more efficient and improved service to our passengers. “The increase in train capacity is a timely boost for the MRT-3, as the public demands [a] higher number of public transportation in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Samantala, ipinaalala rin ni Capati ang mga health rules na kailangang sundin sa loob ng tren katulad ng pagsusuot ng face mask at face shield, physical distancing, hindi maaaring magsalita o sumagot ng phone calls at bawal ang kumain.
